This women’s livelihood group was started by the Buwaiswa community chairman to support and empower women and their families in his community. Refugees Global has since supported the group with a nut mill and start-up funding. Since then, the group has been engaged in adding value to ground nuts and sims for its own consumption and for commercial purposes. It has established a network of retailers and internal distributors to market the different varieties of prepared and semi-cooked foods. The group’s savings have improved abruptly, as has individual income.
Peanut butter is a daily delicacy in Uganda. The main focus must be on ensuring high quality standards.
The Yimuka loan will enable the group to significantly expand its peanut production and invest in a modern machine for grinding the peanuts.
